Do you know instead of surrendering the policy, you can take loan on your policy?

Yes the loan available under your traditional policy is 80-90% of the surrender value.

Term policies do not qualify for loan as they do not have any cash value. ULIPs offers partial withdrawal based on the fund value.

The qualifying criterion for loan is that you must have paid three premiums under the policy. You can check the eligibility of loan from your insurer. Its always recommended to take loan then to surrender your policy.

The interest charged depends on the number of premiums paid and is much lower than the prevailing bank rates and hence is a good option to avail.

You have to fill a prescribed form along with the original policy. The policy is then assigned to the lender till the loan amount is repaid.
